“News of my Demise has been Greatly Exaggerated”…

27/06/2011 Leave a comment

And after a short hiatus, I have returned to posting! Having been away as devs are for development reasons over different platforms – Firefox, N900 and finally MeeGo and the confirmed Nokia N9 with MeeGo Harmattan 1.2 (Maemo viewers will know that Harmattan was also the code name for Maemo 6.0)

Firefox 4.0 and 5.0 have come and been released including the new Do-Not-Track feature as ell as the regular goodies under the hood for web developers.

I shall also return to regular weekly postings under this blog.

MeeGo’s Impact

19/07/2010 Leave a comment

MeeGo (the conversion of the Maemo project as well as Moblin into a open source OS for mobile device not just MID’s) Has certainly come a long way in the space of what could be termed a few short months. In reality, it was longer but still worth it!

I look forward to what MeeGo promises to be: a lightweight, efficient, workable OS designed for the mobile platform and not encumbered with patents that others have had issues with.

The addition of Mobile Firefox (AKA Fennec) 1.1 being released also promises more in terms of what the mobile web can offer and soon offer web designers/developers as well as the future of content on the mobile platform.

Maemo 5.0 AKA Nokia N900 is go!

I’m back! After a busy time away I’m back in the flesh.

And when I say busy, I MEAN busy. We’ve the odd one or two things happen then but it’s official! The Nokia N900 containing the new Maemo 5.0 AKA Fremantle OS is now official and on the way to release.

The new MID (Mobile Internet Device) will be part cellphone and part MID. In the US, I believe the carrier will be T-Mobile however, I am unsure of the others within other territories.

What about Mozilla? The new N900 will come with a Mozilla-based browser as with the previous incarnations like the N800 and the N810 models. Will it be a new browser? I cannot say as I have not tested it yet.

And speaking of Mozilla, a new version of Fennec the mobile browser AKA mobile Firefox for the mobile device device (MID’s, cellphones) platform has released version 1.0 beta 4. Congrats!

Maemo Harmattan keynote at GCDS

06/07/2009 Leave a comment

The Nokia Maemo Harmatten address at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit took place earlier.

The new Harmatten AKA Maemo’s next iteration after Fremantle framework will use a Qt-based framework while being based on GNOME technologies.

As reported:

The goal is to offer an open, efficient and compelling Linux mobile stack with a cross-platform Qt API used also by Symbian and available in other mobile and traditional operating systems. Hopefully a successful step helping free software projects collaborating with each other and also helping free software developers reaching millions of potential users.

The audio is available for download (be warned, 25mins long) as well as slides.
